hoshi no hitomi My name is Gina, and I love vintage shoujo manga. Everything posted here are scans from my collection of manga tankoubon, magazines, artbooks, and other stuff.

cathy-delanssay asked: Hi ! Thank you for the scan of Mizuno Hudeko " Broadway no Hoshi " . Oh it is so lovely !!!! Could you scan more pages from this Hideko's manga , please ? :3

I should finally be able to do this soon, yay. :P

Happy Friday!

I just got this huge, gorgeous complete hardcover edition of Maki no Kuchibue by Maki Miyako. It is one of the most beautiful manga volumes I own. I am a little short on time right now, but I plan on posting more pics this weekend.

Yay, I finally have complete sets of Flowers and Bees and Happy Mania. Only took ten years. :P These are all still easy to find (Amazon has Flowers and Bees in stock) so if you were as shy as I was when it came to buying the shrinkwrapped naughty manga at Borders, now is a good time to make up for it. :P

multiplesifl asked: I just went to my Deadjournal to see if anything had been posted since the last time I went there, saw that you have a tumblr and added you. That's all. :P

Lol, I should check my messages more often. :P

PS: I added you back omg omg. :P
Hello! I haven’t posted in quite a whole because I am still computerless, but I thought I’d pop in here with a quick little recommendation for the (unauthorized; it went unpublished in paperback form for decades because of copyright issues) manga adaptation of the Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday by Mizuno Hideko.

 It was originally published in Ribon in 1963. It is pretty much a direct ripoff of the movie, but it’s really cute and easy to read. Nothing groundbreaking, but it’s interesting to read if you are familiar with the movie.

Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm planning to buy a manga anthology called 好きです、この少女まんが。I think you made a post on this series once, and I wanted to ask what you thought of it? Is it worth getting? Thank you =)

I think it depends on what you like. I would look up what is included in each volume before you buy them all. You probably know each volume is a different theme. I know that some volumes (like the first one) contain mostly newer stories (like 90s-2000s) while others skew much older (the sci fi/fantasy/whatever one is mostly 70s). There are also a lot of titles that I would consider josei rather than shoujo and a lot of Kodansha titles, probably because that’s who published the books.

I hope that helps! If anyone else has questions about anything, feel free to ask away since I’m still unable to scan anything right now.

Hi, there…I haven’t posted in some time because I’m having computer problems, but this is a good enough reason to post. :P

It is not quite 6 AM and I was lying in bed half awake a few minutes ago when I was suddenly made fully awake by the loud crash of the bookshelf holding my manga magazines and most of my “real” books tipping over. My cats are traumatized and my mother thought a car had hit the house. :P

Anyway, I’m still too stunned to do anything but sit here and stare at the moment. :P

Eeeeee, tiny Chibi-neko figurines!  I love them so much.

I got mine in a Yahoo auction, but these are also available on Amazon.  Sorry for the not-so-good phone pictures.
